Every year different combinations and styles of coffee are created, and each year they get more creative. This year there are a few ongoing trends and new trends everyone needs to know about. Starting with single origin coffee.
Single Origin Coffee vs. Blended Coffee.
So, what is the difference between an origin coffee and blended coffee? The main difference is that origin coffee buyers purchase coffee from one place and purchase one particular kind of coffee bean. While blended coffee is a mixture of many different kinds of coffee beans.
Price Differences.Single origin coffee tends to be more expensive than blended. Reason is because they are usually exclusively seasonal and produce a lesser amount (Mrcoffee.com). Blended coffees are less expensive because the many different beans used, produce a variety of coffee beans and many buyers are able to purchase them all year-round.
Taste Differences. Single origin coffees get the taste of that origin’s coffee bean and has that bean’s particular taste. Blended coffees offer much more of a variety. These coffees are more flavorful, and you get different aromas, smoothness, and flavorful notes from these. Notes such as chocolate, vanilla, citrus, and more (Mrcoffee.com). In a way, blended coffees are some form of art because the brewer must blend the coffees in just the right way to make that coffee taste good! Trying different blended coffees is almost like going to different breweries or wineries to taste all the different notes in each specialty made beer or wine.
